If you are visiting NYC but staying in a more affordable neighborhood, it is worth spending one day in The Upper East Side. Beautiful museums, lovely streets to walk and terrific restaurants. Highly recommend!
The Upper East Side is a wonderful upscaled residential area. In addition, it is a great area to explore if you visit the city. There are several avenues to the east of Central Park (Madison, Lexington, Park...). There are many shopping opportunities, department stores (Bloomingdale’s...More
It's quite obvious leaving Central Park to the east, that you enter a different and richer part of Manhattan.
The sound is so much lower and the traffic much lighter than going a few hundred meters South.
It's a nice neighbourhood for living I think...More

The Upper East Side has some of the most exclusive addresses in NYC. There are many great restaurants in this area. Also, you have museums and Central Park. This is more of a bedroom community. A great place to raise a family.

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
